Back to School

I’m sending my first born to school in 6 days.
He’s excited.  I get knots in my stomach just thinking about it.
He’s ready, but I can’t believe he’s going to be gone all day, every day.  He’s been with me for almost 6 years… my buddy. my associate.  my Tomas the Train enthusiast.  my personal shopper.  my lunch date. my baby.
So, in honor of my little guy’s first day of school, I’ve put together a fun collection of “Back to School” items that any girl could show off — in class or otherwise!

Daily Covet: PB for back-to-school

Backpacks?  Lunchboxes?  Back to school?  Already?

No, but I want to be prepared.

I am sending my first born to kindergarten next month.  I’m already mentally preparing for the flood of tears that will pour forth from my eyes that day.  He’s been my baby.  My buddy.  My associate.  For almost six years.

And while I’d love to keep him at home, I know it’s time.  He’s too smart to be at home with me any more.  He’s ready for math and science and writing and reading.  And making new friends.  And playing on the playground.

With that said, I’m still going to be his mom.  And that means I want him to have great accessories (ones that have his initials on them, so we know they are his!)

And that means Pottery Barn backpacks and lunchboxes.  This skateboard-camo print isn’t exactly my favorite of the choices, but I figured skateboarding might stay “cool” longer than the really cute fish & shark print I got for my littlest.

These backpacks and lunchboxes are cute though, and you can choose from even cooler fonts and bright colors to personalize with their names or monogram.

While I may be hesitant to let him go, I know he’s sure to look adorable toting all his necessities to and from his big boy school this fall!
